Include a Charity Week

An awareness initiative of the FIA

It’s ‘Include a Charity’ Week (7 – 13 September), and Abbotsford Convent Foundation is proud to be taking part in this social change campaign with the Fundraising Institute of Australia (FIA).

IAC Week is designed to start more conversations about the importance of creating a Will, and the power of leaving a legacy gift to support the charities and not-for-profit organisations that you care about.

A living legacy gift in your Will is a powerful way to ensure the National Heritage Listed Abbotsford Convent can be nurtured and protected into the future—and enlivened as a sanctuary for the enjoyment of generations to come.

You don’t need to be wealthy to leave a gift in your Will. No matter what the size, a gift in your Will is a powerful way of honouring your connection to the unique inner-urban oasis that is the Abbotsford Convent—and to be a very special part of its future.

This IAC Week, we’re asking our supporters to consider—when the time is right, and you have taken care to provide for your family and loved ones—leaving a gift in your Will that will have a lasting impact on the future of our precinct.

And, as part of IAC Week in 2020, IAC is offering supporters like you a 50% discount if you create a Will using the secure, easy-to-use online platform, Safewill. When you use the unique code IAC50, you will pay $95 for a complete legal Will—with a 50% discount for being a committed supporter of the Abbotsford Convent Foundation.

To find out more, and to create your Will securely online, visit the Safewill website.

Thank you for considering leaving a legacy gift for the Abbotsford Convent.

Please contact Ali Murphy on (03) 9415 3607 or to discuss how your generosity could make a very lasting difference.
